Who played martin luther kings wife in selma
The film stars actors David Oyelowo as King, Tom Wilkinson as President Lyndon B. Coretta Scott King helped lead the African-American Civil Rights Movement in the 19s. Early in 195 Lyndon Johnson believed Southern statesneeded time to absorb the Civil Rights Act of 194, with its comprehensiveban on segregation, before any further action could be taken.King, however, believed a second bill was necessary to secure votingrights for African Americans.
But one of the strangest things about the film is how it deliberately misquotes the civil rights leader. The legal scholar Jonathan Band writes that this was thanks to copyright law.Selma director Ava DuVernay may well have taken more license than artistically necessary in the confrontational scenes between Martin Luther King Jr.
and President Johnson. But inaccuracies in other significant parts of the film were forced upon DuVernay by copyright law.
